I've been overexcitedly sharing my experience on Discord but all I have to say is yes!!! The meta is a whole other level of fucked up due to almost all accounts being non-payer, but I played 4 games of SG last saturday I think it was? I was particularly bad but regardless the caliber was pretty solid - you could expect some clutch plays from at least half of the players on both teams. The characters being played are mostly from 6Days, Sakura and LoD, but at this point I assume barely any of them are being played by the original player. It was still a lot of fun.
After playing I felt like I would totally pay to renew just to level up a few units. But of course, you can't give your money to KRU that way anymore. Perhaps if we send them an email linked to a payment they could just take our money (and hopefully renew the character too)?
Anyways, it's pretty early for people on the West Coast but it's pretty much SG's last breath unless something happens so you should drop by if only to make your peace with it. And get your ass kicked by nameless chinese players who run cloaked EMPers/SC/MW, CobraLord's PR24 parbs or just some guy with momas out at EG.
